First: when I asked for dinner suggestions, LOTS of you suggested pizza. I got really excited about this idea, and while it wasn't my final pick (ratatouille!) I did need to make it ASAP! I didn't make the dough, so I don't know it it qualifies as officially homemade, but it WAS officially delicious! Before baking:
Can you tell which quarter belongs to me?
|Hers: whole wheat crust, tomato puree, zucchini, squash,tomato, a little mozzarella, and salad|
|His: whole wheat crust, tomato slices, ham, and mozzarella|
And now, as promised....the bugs. Today was the third day of trail running instead of flat. I know how lucky I am to be running on empty trails right outside my door. Some of the highlights:
Yes, it's beautiful, serene, a great workout....you know this already. What you might not know:
See those black spots all over me? Bugs. Every time I come home after a run, I have to wipe those suckers off my neck, chest, and arms. DIS.GUS.TING. I swear I don't even notice them when I'm running, thank goodness for mirrors so I can see them when I get back. Blech.
What's your favorite "fake-out" meal (replacement for take out food)?
I think it's officially homemade pizza! So much better than cheap takeout pizza, and custom made toppings, perfect.
Any bugs bother you when you're running?
On a trail, spiderwebs are a given and I'm ok with that. These little bugs stuck all over me = not ok. Also, big problems with cicadas flying at me. Please go back underground for another 17 years or however long and stop bothering me. Thanks.
